Cayuga Centers to Host 170th Anniversary Open House Celebrations at Three Florida Locations

Join Cayuga Centers in celebrating 170 years of service to children and families and the ribbon cutting of its offices in Boynton Beach, Fort Lauderdale and Port St. Lucie

/EIN News/ -- FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Sept. 29, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cayuga Centers, a non-profit human services agency, will host three open houses across its southeast Florida operations to celebrate 170 years of serving children and families in need and introduce the new office locations to the community.

The open houses will be at Cayuga Centers offices in Boynton Beach on October 11, 2022, Fort Lauderdale on October 12, 2022, and Port St. Lucie on October 13, 2022. Each of the open houses are from 2-6 p.m. and kick off formally with a ribbon cutting.

“As we expand in southern Florida and celebrate 170 Years of Cayuga Centers, it’s important to let the community know we are here to support children and families in need,” said Edward Myers Hayes, CEO and President of Cayuga Centers. “We are so excited to celebrate with our communities during these three open house events.”

The events are open to the public, allowing members of the community to learn more about the programs the agency offers in three of its Florida offices. Cayuga Centers’ program staff and leadership, including Hayes, will be there to meet and greet guests. Food and light refreshments will be available.

“We would like to thank the Florida Department of Children and Families, ChildNet, and Communities Connected for Kids (CCKids) for their support in this event and the work we do as we expand in Florida,” said Tamaru Phillips, Senior Vice President of Florida Programs at Cayuga Centers. “We are fortunate to have such incredible partners, and their support allows us to continue offering the best quality care.”

These three office locations highlight Cayuga Centers’ growth in the South Florida region. The Boynton Beach office serves Palm Beach County, the Fort Lauderdale office serves Broward County, and the Port St. Lucie office serves the Treasure Coast region including Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River and Okeechobee counties. Each of these locations provide Treatment Family Foster Care (TFFC), while the Boynton Beach office offers Interstate Compact for the Placement of Children (ICPC).

These open houses are joined by Cayuga Centers’ announcement earlier this month of its merger with the Institute for Child and Family Health (ICFH), which expanded the agency’s services into Miami-Dade county.

“Cayuga Centers expansion in southern Florida is providing vital care to children and families in need across our communities, and we are honored to work with such a passionate organization,” said Larry Rein, CEO and President at ChildNet. “We look forward to celebrating their 170 years of service and our future work in Florida.”
